In Los Angeles, Nikki is homeless, car-less and closing in on 30, but he's amoral, good-looking, and adept in the sack, moving from one wealthy woman of 35 or 40 to another, a kept boy-toy. His newest gig, with Samantha, an attorney whose house overlooks L.A., is sweet, although it's unclear how long she'll put up with him. Then Nikki meets Heather, a waitress. Is the player being played, or might this be love? What will Nikki discover? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Spread is no fairy tale or "van halen video" Spread is about people struggling to get where they want to be by unconventional methods…and not quite getting there.
26 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ashton Kutcher costars with the beautiful Margarita Levieva. He plays a young Hollywood wannabe, Nikki. He appears put together, handsome, rich and successful due to his wardrobe, the women he sees, and the houses he occupies; unbeknownst to everyone he encounters Nikki is poor and homeless. Nikki makes his living by sleeping with rich women; he then becomes their lovely charity case. The women find themselves attached to him and want him as their own. Nikki is perfectly fine with the situation until he meets Heather (Levieva). She, like him, makes her living by targeting rich men. The two are attracted to each other and begin an unconventional relationship. Things are going well until Nikki wants Heather all to himself. Will the two gigolo types be able to have a real functional relationship?

Spread was decent. It wasn't like anything else I have seen which made it fascinating. The plot was intriguing. While watching the film I became more and more disappointed as time went on. There wasn't much development or room for this movie to progress. I felt as though it were stuck in a bit of a rut.

I was both surprised and pleased by the ending. Not every relationship ends with a happy ending. Sometimes love isn't enough. Spread proves that and shows that to us through common situations with a slight twist from reality.
